Irish Estates: Peterson Killarney (B29) (Fishtail) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-004-10509
Originally, the "B29" shape appeared in Peterson's six-pipe Rivers Collection as the Liffey, honoring some of Ireland's most prominent waterways. Outside of that exclusive boxed set, though, it's designated as the "B29" design. It's a bold Billiard rendition and one that presents a more defined transition that emphasizes the bowl's base to reveal prominent cheeks at each flank. While it's a more Danish-style interpretation of the shape-chart standard, it still maintains Peterson's signature muscularity through the shank and bowl, housing a deep chamber for favorite blends.
Like many of Peterson's lines, the Killarney takes its name from an Irish town — in this case, one located in the southwest. Introduced in 1949, the Killarney features a vivid, ruby stain, over which a lacquer finish is applied for added protection and a higher sheen. The color palette calls to mind traditional English finishes of the early 20th century, hearkening back to an era when darker stains were the norm (lighter finishes wouldn't become popular until the decade before WWII). Fitted with twin rings of nickel, the Killarney boasts a formal, vintage appeal, similar to the black-and-chrome dress pipe motif, but with a more colorful persona.-Truett Smith
